Samsung gears up to take on the Smartwatch world with its new Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch. To give its due credit, the watch does manage to get few things correct, but it lacks to perform the “Smart” functions matching up to our expectations.

The Good:

Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch is comfortable to wear, good to look and allows you to view incoming calls easily.

The Bad:

The device lacks emails and social network access and has restricted compatibility to other gadgets. The hit and miss voice controlling feature of the watch limits its functionality.

The new Galaxy Gear Smartwatch allows you to receive calls, send messages, and do various tasks from your wrist watch without touching your phone. It doesn’t support any SIM card or internet connectivity and gets connected to your phone via Bluetooth. At present, it doesn’t support any other gadget other than Galaxy Note 3, but Samsung is making effort to make it compatible with Note 2, S3 and S4.

The watch is available in a number of colours; if black and silver is not your kind. The 1.6 inch display of the watch with a resolution of 320×320 pixels makes text easily readable and helps you enjoy the images you have clicked with the camera in the watch.
